Congratulations to the members of the Girl's and Boy's SRMS Volleyball teams for making the team. This year's game schedule is listed under the School Info/Sports & PE tab.  
Be sure to come out and support your Eagles!!

Our Big Blast fundraiser was a huge success, and we met our fundraising goal - thank you for all your support! The money helps our PTSO fund math and science nights, technology, academic supplies, teacher grants, and the Angel Fund.

The waivers for the Big Blast Celebration will be distributed during lunch on October 22, 2019. Please look for those to come home! Students need to bring the waiver in order to receive their wristband to attend the Big Blast Celebration on October 24, 2019. Wristbands will be distributed at lunch on the day of the event (October 24, 2019). The Big Blast Celebration will be held during the last 2 periods of the day. 

We need volunteers for the Big Blast Fitness Event on October 24th, from 1:45 - 4:15 pm! This event will be outside so please dress accordingly!

Thank you again for all of your support! We exceeded our goal this year! As you know the money helps our PTSO fund math and science nights, technology, academic supplies, teacher grants, and the Angel Fund.​

With the holidays coming up, you may be thinking of teacher gifts. HERE are some of SunRidge Middle School teacher's favorite things! As more lists are completed, the link will be updated!
